Just a point.. a config tool should be *only* a config tool. Right now
my 'config tool' is vi or emacs. They better *not* be starting and stopping
any system programs for me.. SysV init is a standard. I *like* it on
Debian. The BSD style rc.local stuff really rots. Let's let the init
do it's job, and the config tool do it's own.
